Ambitious USL hopefuls FC New York can now boast Don O'Riordan as new technical director.

O'Riordan has joined FC New York after a spell in charge of Chengdu Blades in China, where he was handed the job after a successful coaching stint as part of Neil Warnock's backroom team with Sheffield United.

The former Middlesbrough and Derby County striker is currently overseeing the building of FC New York's junior and U20 squads.
